Things are getting serious for the Tea Party when Fox News posts articles in support of Obamacare. Sally Kohn writes about her experience signing up for the ACA:
This option will cost my family $931 per month — $408 per year less than my previous crappy plan and a $5,000 savings in deductibles. A big win for me and my family financially and in terms of what’s covered.
Plus in the past, I spent several days looking for and comparing insurance options. Under ObamaCare, even with the slow and sticky website, I spent a total of four hours — to save over $5,400. That kind of return on investment would make Warren Buffett drool.
It sounds like Sally is having a comparable experience to what happened with my parents.There is also a journalistic standard on display here from which many of the other Fox people could learn a thing or two: Sally went and got first-hand experience about what the subject of which she intended to write.
Kohn concludes with:
We’ve suffered through four years of outlandish attacks against ObamaCare — that it will kill our grandmothers, or at least just kill our economy. But the fact is that ObamaCare has created a private marketplace so that millions of American families like mine can get affordable, quality health insurance while keeping more of our hard-earned money.
Ideologues may not like ObamaCare, but my wallet and my family’s health sure do.
Many of those ideologues are her compatriots at Fox. Hopefully they will listen to one of their own.
